Say Good Things About Others

Speak well of everybody. Don’t gossip, don’t badmouth even if what you say would be true. If you can’t think of anything nice to say, say nothing at all. Talk to people, not about people. It is good office-karma to refrain from negative comments about people not present in the room. It makes others comfortable that you will not speak evil of them when they are not there. Only say good things about others.
